Creature Feature #16: Angelfish

The Angelfish are a perciform fish found in shallow reefs and should not be confused with the cichlid freshwater Angelfish of South America. Part of the Pomacanthidae family, there are over 80 species. They are diurnal fish, using the daylight hours to forage amongst coral - some on zooplankton, others on algae, depending on the species. At night they hide in crevices.
